Für manche ist ein Dach über dem Kopf entscheidend, für andere ein breites Kulturangebot, für andere wiederum ist ein intestine ausgebautes Kinderbetreuungssystem, die Qualität der Schulen, des öffentlichen Verkehrs oder der Luft ausschlaggebend. Wenn auch die Ansprüche von verschiedenen Bevölkerungsgruppen unterschiedlich gewichtet werden, so gewinnen soziale und ökologische Kriterien für die Beurteilung von Lebensqualität in der Stadt doch ständig an Bedeutung. Jenseits der unzähligen subjektiven Blicke auf die Stadt, auch jenseits politischer Imagebehauptungen zeigen die nackten Zahlen – im Vergleich mit anderen Städten in Europa - die Stärken und Schwächen von Linz auf.
